Out on the east coast of Nova Scotia!

It was a great vacation! Lots of inspiration in everything I see on the coast. From the ocean, beaches and food but most of all the people. I love going home to Nova Scotia. The walks along the board walks to the sound of the wave makes by pulling the ocean over the rocks.

I have many, many lovely pictures to create new art work and I can’t wait to get started. I did get to paint while on vacation. I created two small paintings.

I do have a few shows coming up! August 22nd at the Richmond Village Farmers Market which has been moved to the village. I will be participating in the Wall Candy show at the Wesley Clover Park, on Corksdown Road, Kanata Sept 11th and 12th. Plus, other dates in September so I will confirm them in the next week and let you know.

Also, while in Nova Scotia I had my artwork printed on many bags for the Wall Candy show by Mint River Promotions.

I have been relaxing but now it is time to get back to work. Hope to see you at one of the shows and chat.
